"Recognizing the impact the Linux operating system has had on IT environments, Check Point Software Technologies Inc. said today it will port its VPN-1 and FireWall-1 product families to support Linux in the first quarter of 2000."
"Check Point's goal is to help network administrators create a secure virtual network architecture strategy, one that extends the high level of security found in Internet transactions to those conducted over a local area network, says Mike Lee, product marketing manager for Check Point. "To do this, Check Point's security products need to run on a number of different platforms, including Linux."
